ObamaCare Wants Poor Disabled Latino Women to Build $800 Million Website

I can’t wait till it crosses the $1 billion threshold. We should have a party with balloons, ice cream, cake. Except we won’t be able to afford it because of ObamaCare.

At least the clown act is free.

After shelling out $677 million to build the federal health care website, the government will spend an additional $121 million in 2014 to repair it—$30 million more than previously estimated—the Washington Times reported last night. This comes just as the Obama administration is starting the hunt for next year’s diverse group of contractors.

CGI Federal, the original lead contractor awarded $93.7 million, was replaced by Accenture this past January. Accenture received an initial payment of $45 million—an amount that was supposed to double by year’s end, according to the Washington Post. But yesterday, Accenture Federal Services announced their final agreement of $121 million for work through January 10, 2015.

The search for Accenture’s successor has commenced, and the administration has some specific criteria on its applicants’ gender, race, and socioeconomic status. From the New York Times yesterday.

“Federal officials said Monday that they intended to hold a new competition before awarding a contract and that they were particularly interested in responses from small businesses owned by women, disabled veterans and “socially and economically disadvantaged individuals,” including black and Hispanic Americans.”

Sure, give it to a company of poor disabled gay Latino women. They probably can’t do any worse. Or maybe they can. Either way it will cost a lot of money and work badly.

Just like the rest of the government.

    Women and minorities must be given advantages. Otherwise, white males will stay on top forever & ever.
    Oh Wait, that doesn’t happen.
    See the Fuggers or the Krupps. The last Krupp decided he wanted by gay and party all day. Thus ended a family owned company.

    This costly absurdist nightmare continues.Obamacare at its best, promises to be another VA. , as per: recent revelations on Fox News.We will all be neglected “veterans” of 5,6,7,8 years of the Reign of Obama,conscripted involuntarily into HIS “Army”….

    “Non-Whites” are essentially who Obamacare is for. Basically a voter registration drive for lower-class Dems.

    Just give it to incompetent imbeciles and be done with it.

    • Douglas J. Bender

      They already tried that.

    • Dreamer

      The problem is the imbeciles they already gave it to weren’t black/Latino/gay enough. Won’t make that mistake this time around. Suppose the contract says anything about competence and experience regarding the deliverable product?

  • Douglas J. Bender

    Where are all those wise, disabled Latino women when you need them?

    Nothing says inclusiveness like have a specific group getting preferential treatment to benefit from a program that was shoved down the throats of all Americans. Fraud, incompetence and waste is a criminal act against the taxpayers. All the taxpayers regardless of race or creed, etc. Now we have the Obama administration actually doing it in the open.

    They should call it the DREAM act. Destructively Reduce and Eradicate Anything Modern. Let’s just create a feudal state within a state.

    I’m sure that’s not materially different from most Federal contracting guidelines. A bidding firm will ALWAYS be given priority according to it’s racial and makeup. Also for the handicapped and veterans. There are Federal statutes that stipulate this. In fact a huge problem in Federal contract compliance and audits is trying to discover if the contractors is front for a different firm that doesn’t meet the head of the line criteria.
